According to a report from August 2012 by the National Resources Defense Council, America wastes about 40 percent of its food supply. Let that sink in for a moment. Imagine going into your kitchen and just throwing away 4 pounds of food for every 10 pounds you have. That makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. You’ve either spent money buying or time growing and harvesting your food. Why on Earth would you want to just toss it out? The simple fact is we don’t throw away food that’s typically “good” – only the things that either grow hair, turn sour, or pass their expiration date. I’m sure you’ll all want to know these 25+ ways to keep food from spoiling.
